North Salem, New York, USA – May 16, 2021 – The stars were out on the grass field of the beautiful Old Salem Farm on Sunday for the $73,000 Old Salem Farm Grand Prix CSI 2*, presented by The Kincade Group, the feature class of the first week of the Old Salem Farm Spring Horse Show.
A star in her own right and proper name, Adrienne Sternlight (USA) and Benny’s Legacy stole the spotlight claiming the win in the 1.45m contest aboard the 13-year-old Oldenburg gelding (Lupicor x Voltaire).
Canada was represented on the podium by Mario Deslauriers (CAN) and Bardolina 2 (Clarimo Ask x Clearway), who rode to silver honors.
The importance of Adrienne’s achievement was magnified as the young star competed against some of the biggest names in the sport. A World and Olympic Champion in his own right, Rodrigo Pessoa (BRA) guided Quality FZ (Quintender 2 x Berlin) towards a third-place finish.
